While gold has become the color of opulent furnishings that should always look classy and expensive, copper was rather forgotten as a surface material. This is so unmerited. Our new favorite color is something very special which Cyprus is also famous for. No mainstream and anything but trite. Copper does not show off – it just doesn’t have to. It demonstrates pure sense of style with the charm of understatement.
But copper has many different faces. It begins with the shades: the spectrum of this wonderful material ranges from brown to pastel pink and more.
Here are two totally different looks:
Here the bright copper hues like the classic rosé are in demand: By smoothly polished surfaces, the delicate color comes out glossy and shimmery. This fresh, innocent look can fabulously be combined to beige, cream, rose, white and gold. Those who now desire something new for their own home, can cautiously start with a few accessories like the delicate Vase Circle Copper Waist or set a clear statement with the ceiling light Rumble Copper Round. The irregular surface guarantees a pleasant contrast to the noble copper finish. The round shape stylishly stages this mix.
The mysterious look craves dark, oxidized tones. Here the color palette goes from broken orange over russet to heavily shaded rose. The antique appearance is effected by scratches, rough structures and blackened pits. The material looks as if it was tarnished over the years. Combine this look with dark colors like brown, blue, purple, black, olive and dark brick red. The chair Louis Brown Copper shows how it works:
The warm and gentle chalcocite of the frame is in perfect harmony with the upholstery fabric made of brown velvet. The oval backrest provides a subtle and restrained contrast with its dark red buttons.
